The House of Lords has created a call for evidence on the Relationship between EU membership and UK science. This will fuel a review by the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee that aims to “conduct a rigorous, evidence-based ‘stocktake’ of the key ways our EU membership affects science, research and innovation in the UK.”
All submissions are welcome and Scientists for EU will be making their own submission, hopefully with your help! In the form below we’ve set out the full 14 questions proposed by the Committee. We are especially pleased to see that ‘Collaboration’ has the most questions reflecting its key importance in this debate. Also that the questions cover the UK’s ability to influence EU science policy as well as all the incoming benefits for UK-based science.
You do not have to fill in all questions but the more the merrier. We will collate the answers from all respondents and then submit a collated view to the Committee in time for the deadline of 20th November. We will also email this compiled submission back to our participants and to our usual newsletter subscribers (subscribe here).
You can also submit your own individual opinion to the House of Lords directly using their online form.
As our submission will need to be collated, we ask that you submit the form below to us before the main deadline, ideally by 15th November.
